My Polish boyfriend told me that there are some strange laws that are currently implemented in Poland. Ugh!
My question is, are there anything you should know when you want to start a business in Poland? Are there, besides the common laws concerning enterprises, EU-regulation and so on, any custom laws, written or unwritten in Poland when, as a foreigner, you want to start a business, especially one that probably is going to employ a 150+ (local-) ppl?
Sorry, what if I want to set-up a retail or if I want to start an importation business (products from the Philippines)?
What kind of business will it be MareGaea?
Is there an official website in English that gives information to budding businessmen in Poland, especially expats?
I think You are asking abt something else- law You can check yourself (or your attorney will help)
1. Polish administration is not helpfull. In fact stupidity and avoiding common sense is normal. You may have luck or simpliest things can take months
2. restrictive bankruptcy proceedings- now it's hard to avoid personal responsibility of Board in case of bankruptcy
3. And something better- there is many different inspections, etc., but if you already have estabilished bussines any penalties are symbolic for 100+ employees company
4. abt labor law- polish workers are used to longer workin day. Formally it's 40 h/week with very limited overtime. In fact working day in one-shift factory is 10 hours
other things or my help as attorney- PM please
